Review of the Atari 2600 Vadar on YouTube (comedic style) :o)

Recommended Posts

Hello there peops, I've just done a bit of a comedic review of the Atari 2600 Vadar from 1981 on YouTube.

 

I have a scene spoofing the opening scenes from Star Wars and a light sabre fight with a phoenix.

 

Can you have a look and tell me what you think please: YouTube video

 

Steve

Good video overall. :) Can't complain too much, except that the video seemed a bit slower than necessary. Maybe could condense the content closer to 10-12 minutes without losing the important information and humor.

1. Vader joysticks are different in that the arrows/markers around the stick are black, rather than yellow/orange, as in older models.

2. I believe the pot you said is a tuning pot is actually for color adjustment.

The misspelling of "Vader" cuts the impact in half.

You noticed that too? I forgot to mention that.

 

Another observation ... this guy has only 2 posts here at AA. Both of them are requests to review and comment on his vids, with no responses to our reviews. Not sure if he's just trying to get his YouTube views up or what.

Yeah I didn't really like it, simply because you said it was funny. Had you just said a review of the Atari 2600, I'd think it would've been funny.

What sucks is I only have 1 of those carts pictured! (And I have something like 270 different ones)
